I am fairly new to AmiBroker and I am used to using hourly bars and having my first hourly bar end at 10:29. It looks like Amibroker has the first hourly bar end at 9:59. Is there anyway to change it so the first bar is 60 minutes (ending at 10:29) and the last bar of the day is 30 minutes, ending at 4pm?

Thanks in advance!

I think you will find what you’re looking for here:

Look at the Intraday preferences, specifically “Align minute bars to regular market hours”.
